Their 18 year old age limit for the restaurant should be more prominently disclosed. My 17 year old daughter wasn’t impressed….

Overall the stay would be better if the hotel could respect the “do not disturb” label on the door. They kept calling the room and my personal phone several times “just to check up on me” and kept knocking one day while I was in a work call “just to check if I saw the door label from the room service”. I did see it — no need to knock, thank you!

Beautiful room - bright and spacious, which is hard to get at boutique hotels. Great location. Quiet in the hotel - you don't hear the neighborhood noise at all - but you can hear the conversations, TV, etc. in the neighboring rooms because of the ceiling acoustics (it's a converted building with an odd ceiling) that bounces sound around. That was the only downside.

The room was spacious for a person and I like the room being quite even though it is on busy street. Loved the tub but there is no towel bar strangely. Hard to dry the towels.

My king of kings room was spacious (for London) and had great windows, and the staff were all exceptionally attentive--the front desk spent twenty minutes helping me find a suitable restaurant with a table available. The only downsides were that (1) the couch in my room was much too low for the table that was crowded up against it; (2) the restaurants in the hotel were all too loud or spicy for my boring tastes; and (3) the staff upsold me to a more expensive room when I arrived less than an hour before check-in time, on the pretext that my reserved room wasn't ready yet; that may have been true, but a sales pitch is not what one wants to deal with when one arrives exhausted from travel, and simply giving me whatever room was available, without an extra charge, would have been more gracious.
